My google is driving me nuts, about 75% of the searches go fine, yet some searches from google give the normal results but when clicked take me to an ask.com type page?

I ran adaware deleted all of what it found (fully updated too btw) and it "seemed" to fix it yet its hard to tell since it doesnt happen ALL the time, but today again I put a business name into google search to get their phone and address and a dumb ask.com page came up UGHH

Anyone heard of this happening and or why?

If you have the Ask.com toolbar installed on either IE or Firefox (whatever browser you are using). close your browser, go to your control panel> add remove programs

and uninstal the ask toolbar.

Also make sure google is set as your default search engine in your browser.

Just try to find if you have this ask.com toolbar installed somewhere on your explorer since it comes up everytime when you do a google search
sometimes it also may be because of typing mistakes if you have not typed the spelling right
it happens so
